Christ is in our midst! We are very interested in your participation in the Second Phase of the ONCD Program that is before us: the FOCUS GROUPS! Their purpose is to acquire Participants' opinions, beliefs, perceptions, and attitudes relative to the Spiritual Health and Growth of our beloved Parish.
The accumulated information generated from these Focus Groups will help us to realize the overall goal for our community: to grow in our spiritual health; to become more Christ-centered and focused on seeing in all persons the Image and Likeness of God; to become better witnesses to our Orthodox Faith by becoming better examples of the Faith's Stewardship, thereby attracting both the lapsed Orthodox Christians as well as the non-Orthodox to our Church Community, with the sole purpose being to strengthen our Spiritual Health as a Christ-centered community.
Each Focus Group will consist of a Facilitator, a note-taker, and a maximum of 12 participants.
Focus Groups - Round 1 (Completed in June 2019) The goal of this initial focus group was to determine what some of the barriers are.
Focus Groups - Round 2: (Completed in September 2019) The goal of this focus group was to present the new ministries and see what areas people would like to participate in.
